Review: Strange Someone, by Kel McDonald and Melissa Curtin

Sometimes Comixology tags things as romance and I get the idea that I should buy them. And then they sit on my iPad for a year. And then when I finally read the thing... I wonder why I did.

This story opens with a writer interviewing a male nurse. There's some weird back and forth about how he's a nurse and not a doctor and will he be able to answer the questions she has for research for her next novel. Eventually, they hang out a bit and she realizes that he's far more interesting (weird) than the story she's writing. She gets the idea to write a story based on him - his super sense of smell, his other quirks - and he thinks they're dating. At the end of the story, they're dating for real. Oh, and he's a werewolf who has a friend who is a cop AND a werewolf. They team up to take down a bad werewolf. Knowing that this is a side story connected to the Sorcery 101 world helps, but I still don't think there's enough depth and detail in this arc.

This comic is fine, but there's not much substance to it. I suggest checking out Kel McDonald's more recent work, like the Can I Pet Your Werewolf anthology, or just go read this on her site as a webcomic.
